It was just over two years ago when Fandango burst onto the scene and announced himself to the WWE Universe with an incredible win at WrestleMania 29 against Chris Jericho.

Immediate Star

And the WWE Universe loved him right back. The Raw after 'Mania - always one to be known as raucous with a heavy amount of European fans in attendance - was a crazy one, with fans cheering every Fandango move and singing his theme song.

That theme song became one of the biggest things in WWE at the time, with the song entering the charts and social consciousness. It seemed that Fandango, however unlikely, was on his way to being something of a star.

Then things all fell apart. Vince McMahon refused to make Fandango a full on face, having the wrestler insult fans that cheered him, and a series of losses saw Fandango fall by the wayside, with him most recently turning heel, ditching the song and appearing on Main Event and Superstars.

Face Turn

Until last night. In front of a raucous London crowd that helped make Fandango the phenomenon he so briefly became, the dancing superstar ditched Rosa Mendes - we still have no idea how she continues to be employed by the WWE - and brought back the ChaChaLaLa, to the delight of the British crowd.

As you may be able to imagine, it wasn't just those in the crowd that enjoyed the turn. No, Fandango started trending on Twitter and the love was shown over the social media site.

Let's hope that this actually sticks and wasn't just for the London crowd, who Vince and the creative team probably knew would pop for him. 

Fandango is an interesting character and one that could do surprisingly well if the WWE gave him a small push. Johnny Curtis is a fantastic wrestler, which is criminally under-appreciated by fans, so if he could add another signature component or two to his repertoire then this could be the beginning of the reinvention of Fandago.
